For Parents

What is Ahava Family? A range of services and programs for expectant and first-time parents.

Expecting? Ahava family offers classes and get-togethers for expectant parents.

New parent? We will provide you with a baby gift and informational resources, distributed by a community volunteer or staff member.

Parent of an Infant/Toddler? Join us for Babies, Books, and Bagels; which is a partnership program with the JCC for families with kids up to 18 months old.
